Feast Your Way through the French Countryside without Leaving Paris
At Hotel Lancaster's Monsieur Restaurant
The Lancaster was originally built as a mansion by a Spanish nobleman in 1889 and converted to a luxury hotel by eminent hotelier, Emile Wolfe in 1930. The hotel opened to great acclaim hosting celebrities from around the world. One of the early guests was the well know Russian painter, Boris Pastoukhoff, who donated many of his paintings for his frequent stays which grace the walls of the hotel to this day. Marlene Dietrich ensconced herself in one of the hotel suites for 3 years
One of Marlene’s personal friends, known fondly just as Monsieur, had a passion for cooking and Paris. However he loved the countryside as well and set off to explore all the different regions recounting his culinary adventures, the different tastes, the different wines and the different landscapes upon his return. Not content with words he set about recreating the many different dishes using produce from each region and serving them especially to her.
In this tradition Monsieur Restaurant has been created at Hotel Lancaster serving seasonal, regional and authentic French countryside cuisine sourcing fresh ingredients from each locality.
Each month a different region is celebrated for guests to discover and savor combining both simple and complex tastes filled with countryside conviviality. Patrons of the restaurant have a chance to experience the delight of each different area without traveling out of Paris.
The mix of authenticity and glamour in the décor coupled with warm and friendly staff make the Hotel Lancaster a refuge in the heart of bustling Paris.
